I can see where you are coming from with this, and yeah temporarily (a day or two) just may be what we need.
More importantly, perhaps a rework of some kind would be in order regarding newly registered member's? The 20 posts before a new thread idea seems a
little too loose IMO. Throughout the past few days or so, I've seen quite a few newly registered members rush to their 20 posts (with hardly any
contribution at all) only to start duplicated threads or threads that are irrelevant.
Additionally, people are so used to agreeing to numerous T&C's throughout their day, they probably think to themselves, why bother reading one more?
Seeing as how I don't like like people who complain and then fail to offer suggestions, here's mine.
Make the Freshman Forum not a place where tips and tricks and F.A.Q's are but make it a for real "Freshman Forum" with a few subcategories...or
even have threads in this forum policed by the Mods before publishing. Restrict them there for say, a month or so. This way, the newly appointed
thread starters can start threads in what seasoned people will know to be the "Freshman Forum"... Still get ad revenue, still get new topics, and
new members can feel as if they are contributing...Is this making any sense?
Anyway, my two cents.
